} someone please explain/describe the bookhouse boys I keep hearing about?

They are a "secret society" made up of Twin Peaks folks who are an extra-
legal force for law and order and niceness (something like the Guardian
Angels in New York City). So far, the members that we know of are Harry,
Hawk, Big Ed, James, Joey Paulsen, and, now, Coop. Hank was a BB who
went bad.

Yup. It was Truman's signal to Coop to say, "Don't worry, Coop, the
Bookhouse Boys will be behind you all the way."
